The graduate course of civil engineering is fully committed to educating graduate students to become well-disciplined engineers, practitioners and researchers who endeavour to engage in planning, designing, construction and maintenance of the important infrastructures necessary for our society, including roads, railways, dams, energy supply facilities, information and communications facilities, facilities for water supply and sewage, ports and airports. It is also important to engage in reducing risks of natural hazards that strike our society more often than ever.

Our greatest mission is therefore to send off graduate students who have basic technical skills and continue to develop their capability. The curriculum of the graduate course fully relies on its undergraduate scheme of academic areas, consisting of structural engineering, hydraulics and hydro-climatology, geotechnical engineering, concrete engineering, environmental engineering and transportation planning and remote sensing. Graduate students are enrolled in the advanced levels of academic areas associated with their supervising professors. They are required to complete several classes associated with their academic areas, as well as some other classes of different disciplines in civil engineering and liberal arts. They are also required to conduct research on specific topics to submit graduate theses and to go through oral examinations.
